Sarkodie’s performance at the concert will be remembered as the best put up by any artiste this year.

The BET award winner delivered on his earlier promise to provide the best of entertainment for his fans at Ashaiman on the night. He was, indeed, one of the best artistes on that night.

Known for delivering mid and fast tempo songs, Sarkodie dished out most of his popular songs.

His great vocal versatility, dynamic movements and general stage charisma got the fans applauding non-stop during his performance on stage.

Lilwin also made his presence felt on the night as he arrived on stage in his ‘Superman’ outfit and delivered an excellent performance.

Other artistes such as Guru, Kofi Kinaata, Kwaw Kese and Edem also performed creditably to the satisfaction of music fans present at the event.

They left no stone unturned at the show, as they gave out hits in continuity to thrill music fans gathered at the event.

Okomfo Kwadee, who was among the surprise artistes, performed most of his popular old tunes.

When Kwadee took over the stage, he performed brilliantly, wowing the music fans at the event.

Stonebwoy and Samini also climaxed the concert with their outstanding performances.

“SARKODIE AND KWAW KESE ARE POOR” – Shatta Wale

Ghana’s acclaimed Dancehall King Shatta Wale has stated with strong emphasis that Rappers Sarkodie and Kwaw Kese are currently very poor financially and they are refusing to accept that publicly.

The Zylofon Signee has described his colleague musicians Sarkodie, and Kwaw Kese as “Very Poor”.

Speaking on Kumasi-based Luv FM, the ‘Gringo’ hit maker said many so-called A-rated artistes are poor but do not want the public to know.

He said the Ghana music industry has a big problem, which is that artistes are paid lesser wages for performances.

“I am talking about the problem that it is in the music industry that they know it’s a problem which they don’t want people to know, because when people know that right now Kwaw Kese is very poor, Sarkodie is poor….” He said.

He continued to say that..“Even Stonebwoy, Stonebwoy is on my label so at least, he gets some cash for there. He gets some Benz, 1,2,3..4. But the rest of them are poor and I am saying the poor because it is very very serious.”

According to him, he will continue to fight the system until Ghanaian artistes are paid well for their performances. Shatta Wale’s latest ‘attacks’ come on the back of a previous rant against the aforementioned artistes.

Shatta Wale yesterday, September 22,2018 held a press conference to unveil the cover art for his upcoming ‘Reign’ album at the Kumasi City Mall. ‘The Reign’, is the third album for Shatta Wale and the first under Zylofon Music label with 17 tracks produced by Mogbeatz, Baddoneh, ShawerzEbiem and DJ Milzey.

“MY GREATEST FEAR IS NOT BEING ABLE TO KEEP MY FAMILY TOGETHER” – Sarkodie

What is your greatest fear?’ was arguably the most difficult question for Sarkodie during his interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM as it took the rapper some seconds before he answered and even that, he did not give a straightforward response.

“If I say anything, it’s because I have to say something but I have to think about it” he said.

Asked if that suggested he does not fear anything, the artiste who had earlier consulted his manager on what to say but was ‘ignored’, paused for a second and said, “Fear? I think not being able to keep my family together.”

His answer earned him some applause from the panelists for having shown that he is “a family man”. Known in private life as Michael Owusu Addo, the musician tied the knot with his girlfriend and baby mama Tracy, on July 17, this year.

The two who have known each other for 10 years, have a daughter called Titi. She turned 2 in April.

SARKODIE ESCAPES DEATH

Sarkodie was involved in an accident on his way to Asante Akyem Agogo in the Ashanti Region to perform at a concert organised by Highlife legend Amakye Dede.

The incident occurred on the ‘Kumasi Agogo road’, on Easter Monday April 2, 2018, but thankfully the ‘Wake Up Call’ rapper is fine and well and is currently in Agogo township according to sources.

The rapper also in a tweet has confirmed he is safe. He tweeted to his 1.65 million followers:

“Last night was pure madness with the people of Agogo … Day didn’t start too well but one energy I try never to entertain is the “Negative” One ..You should too😊 God keep us all Safe 🙏🏾 I Love all of you ❤❤❤❤”.

Sarkodie was billed to perform at the program with Abrantie Amakye Dede.

Here are some facts gathered about the accident.

1.He traveled by air from Accra.

So many people have wondered why Sarkodie was traveling by road when he could just have used a flight. Well, Sarkodie didn’t go on that journey by full road. He went by air and we’ve seen him at the airport in videos. Definitely, when you get to the airport, you would still have to use the road for the rest of the journey.

2.No serious injuries although he looked traumatized.

Yes, it’s been confirmed that, he didn’t suffer any serious injury and he looked fit when he came out of the car. In one of the videos that was making rounds, he was seen pointing the accident scene to another person who offered her ride to him to get to his destination.

3. He didn’t go by taxi

In one of the videos, some people saw him in a taxi and thought Sarkodie was traveling around with a taxi. That is an erroneous impression. When the car that went to pick him up at the airport got damaged in the accident, there were no cars there to get him to continue the journey, so he had to pick a cab, but before he could move, someone offered her car, and that explains why he was coming out of a taxi to get into another white private car.

4.Another car collided with theirs

We don’t want to believe that was an attempt by someone to hurt him or kill him, but from what we’ve gathered, another car collided into theirs and that made theirs lose track and skidded off the road.

5.Amakye Dede is also safe 

Yes, it wasn’t a major accident and we thank God for their lives. We gather the concert happened successfully.
